Sugar Beet in dog food
Beet pulp (the fibrous material from sugar beets which is left-over after sugar production) is used in dog food as a dietary fibre supplement. The sugar is almost completely removed leaving behind an excellent source of both soluble and insoluble fibre. Fibre helps to promote general digestive health in dogs. Nevertheless, beet pulp continues to be a topic of debate with many critics arguing that it is little more than a filler and an un-natural food for dogs. With little solid evidence either way, the jury is still out on beet pulp.
